In this talk I will present work on using coordinate-based neural networks for visualizing field-based data, e.g. data produced from large-scale numerical simulations or medical images. I will demonstrate that such a class of models are beneficial for visualization in three distinct ways: for the compression of fields, the reconstruction of fields from subsampled data, and for the efficient computation of derived visual quantities. A common theme in my work is the development of techniques that are informed by how fields are commonly visualized, namely, gradient-preserving compression, integration-based reconstruction of vector fields, and surrogate models of flow maps learned solely from vector fields.
